    Zebco Model 11 - what is it ?

 A friend of mine picked up this reel,Pat # 2675193,it was made in Tulsa,Oklahoma.It has a push pin to cast which disengages the reel handle,after the cast you push in the reel handle to be able to engage it.It also has a hole on the backside which appears to be covered with a ceramic type of material.Could someone tell me some history about this reel so I can pass it on? I tryed to email Zebco but something on their end isnt working.This reel appears to be rather old and in excellant condition. Thank you for your time.

   Zebco 11 from Jack (192.147.69.34)  7/19/1999 2:20:00 PM
 The Zebco 11 is either the 1st or 2nd reel Zebco made. If you look on the bottom of the reel foot it may be marked Zero Hour Bomb Co. Prior to making the Zebco reels the company made bome sights during WWII. The early Zebcos very very well made reels that usually are still very servicable. The reel doesn't have much collectors value probably because so many were made and not many collectors have started collecting spin cast reels. What you have is a very early example of America's contribution to fishing - the spin caster. It is pretty common to find these reels for about $20 - $25 or less. Hope this helps some.
